Dear Early Childhood Educators (Birth─3rd Grade) and Early Childhood Programs,
IT’S PICTURE TIME! Does your program offer high quality, developmentally appropriate, and culturally and linguistically responsive early childhood experiences where children and their caregivers are deeply engaged in learning? ADE ECE invites you and your program to submit photos for use in the Arizona Early Learning Standards and other ADE early childhood purposes. We are seeking photos that represent our diverse children, families, and educators statewide: High Quality Inclusive Early Learning across Arizona. In Arizona, a high quality preschool program means an early learning program that fully implements to a significant degree the Program Guidelines for High Quality (PGHQ) and quality improvement tools aligned with the statewide quality rating and improvement system Quality First: www.qualityfirstaz.com.
The top 2 exemplary submissions will each receive 1 complimentary registration each to the ADE ECE Summer Institute June 20-22, 2018. Award recipients will be contacted by March 5, 2018 and should plan to attend this conference at the Wigwam Resort in Phoenix. Completed submissions are due via email by
December 8, 2017 at 5 p.m. Extended Deadline: February 8, 2018. We look forward to seeing High Quality, Inclusive Early Learning across Arizona. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us: [email protected] or 602-364-1530.
